ANNOUNCE: gnome-utils the "Badger spleens" release


Yay! Another release of gnome-utils.  This time with things actually working
for a change, and a couple of new proggies even.  Not to mention that configure
output looks nicer, as if anybody cares about that.

Anyway, thanks go to Kjartan for doing so much work on this and pushing me to
actually do something.  As well as all the other people that contributed to
this release.

What is gnome-utils?  Well as the name would suggest these are GNOME
utilities.  They're the stupid little programs that are part of every
desktop.  And some that aren't part of every desktop.

Hopefully over the next few months there will be some UI cleanup of things
and some new useful proggies added, there are many things that we are still
missing in terms of stupid little utilities.  So everyone think of them and
get coding ...
